Following a near-death, traumatic motorcycle crash, a woman (Marilyn Chambers) is rushed to a nearby hospital specializing in plastic surgery: the Keloid Clinic. There, Dr. Keloid performs an emergency, but still experimental, skin-graft surgery on her that leaves her mysteriously bloodthirsty and wielding a phallic organ from her armpit that penetrates and desiccates her victims. Quickly, those bitten turn into braindead, foaming-at-the-mouth zombies, biting and transmitting the infection. When she finally escapes to Montreal, chaos reigns on the city. An early low-budget thriller from Cronenberg, this deadly serious yet lively take on the zombie/virus/mad-scientist genres remains undeniably unique and terrifyingly enjoyable, straight up until the crushing final shot.
